Comp Card Candids

While these last days of nice weather begin to dwindle, make sure you make time to get out and enjoy the fresh air. James Boland here knows how to go out and make the best of the weather while playing soccer with his brother.

When shooting images for a model’s  comp card it’s important to capture the subject in different lights. Having a formal headshot is always crucial, but the comp card is a lot stronger with some natural candid-style images included. This image for example shows James’s body structure and is a nice shot of him having a great time doing one o his favorite activities. When shooting multiple images for a comp card remember to change up:

-wardrobe-
-location-
-style-
-angles-

Happy Shooting. :]

Using a Monochromatic Color Scheme

Color is always a very critical element to a photograph. Using color schemes and contrasting or complementary colors is a good way to create an aesthetically pleasing photograph. However, who ever said that a monochromatic photo couldn’t also be interesting? This image taken in Bermuda illustrates a very relaxing a calm environment which is accented by the many shades of blue composing the scene.

Next time you are making photographs, think about color. Carefully choose the color palette in your shot.
And remember, using a single color can create just as much of an impact as different color combinations.

Happy Shooting.

Become a Gold Medalist in Sports Photography

With the Olympics commencing the whole world has sports on the brain! If you are one of the lucky people to be holding one of 8 million tickets to go and see the Olympics in London this year, you have got to be prepared to capture some great action shots. Make sure you are ready to catch the jumps, spins, and dives these world class athletes are serving up! And if you’re watching the Olympics from home like us, practice sports photography with your friends and family so you’re ready for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi!

  • Get your priorities straight. Consider using the Shutter Priority Mode in your camera and choose a fast shutter speed! The faster your shutter speed is, the better you will be able to “freeze time,” allowing us to view an action in a way that we can’t typically see with the naked eye.
  • If the lens fits, use it! Choosing which lens to use depends on the types of images you’re going for. Consider telephoto lenses if you are in the nose bleed sections! Maybe try a wide angle lens to get views of the whole stadium environment. Choose a lens with a large aperture opening like f1.8 to allow for better captures in low-light.
  • Use a high ISO! The higher the ISO you use, the more sensitive your camera is to light. This makes it easier to capture the action in low-lighting environments. However, beware of too much grain as the ISO gets into extremes.
  • What’s your angle? When possible, experiment by shooting from different angles to catch the action from all sides.
  • Experiment! Try some things you normally wouldn’t. What happens when you slow your shutter speed way down to show some movement? Or when you shoot from a super low angle? Take a look around, why not shoot some of the reactions in the crowd? Play around!
  • Cover your bases. Be prepared! Bring extra batteries, memory cards, external flash, and different lens options.

Lights, Camera, Shoot!

Bon Voyage!

Travel photography is really all about the joys of travelling. It’s about taking the time to look around and find the elegant beauty in the simple things of a foreign place.

Looking up and seeing this interesting roof scene captures a very different, yet equally captivating depiction of Bermuda.

When it comes to travel photography try keeping it simple, like how you would enjoy a relaxing vacation. Sometimes the most interesting photographs of a destination are of the less typical scenery.

So while you’re out travelling this summer keep this in mind!

Happy shooting!

medical

The team at Bohm-Marrazzo has definitely been keeping busy these past few weeks!  A few of our highlights have been the great opportunity to scrub in at some of the best hospitals in the state.

From professional portraits to an afternoon surgery in the OR, we love to have the ability to explore and communicate the wonders that these doctors and their incredible teams do everyday.

The experience alone of putting yourself in their shoes (or fancy blue shoe covers!) is truly amazing.
